A TRUE STORY OF FAITH, DEVOTION AND UNDYING LOVE

HACHI – A DOG’S TALE – Drama/Family (2009) – Rated G

Richard Gere is Parker Wilson, a suburban Rhode Island professor, who finds a stray Akita puppy roaming around his train station one winter night.  When the grouchy ticket booth clerk (Jason Alexander) refuses to assume responsibility, Parker rather reluctantly takes the irresistible pooch home to his disapproving wife, Cate (Joan Allen) – who eventually relents after observing Parker’s enormous attachment to the lost and found pet.

Far more than your basic furry love story, Hachi – the name attached to the dog’s collar and linked to his distant origins at a Japanese Shogun monastery – touches on the uncommon loyalty of pooches for people; a devotion that has a lesson or two in store for more often than not fickle humans.  Even more amazing, is that this heroic tale is all true, based on the life of an actual dog in 1920s Tokyo who never forgot or ceased to await the arrival of his master, even years after their separation.  From Newsblaze – Prairie Miller

THE OCEAN IS CALLING…

MOANA – Animation/Adventure/Comedy (2016) – Rated PG

We are so spoilt by the amazing achievements of animation we hardly notice when something special comes along, unless we look out for it.  Moana makes us look.  The quality of the animation in every aspect of this film is astonishingly high – these film-makers have truly excelled.

Something of a cross between Polynesian folk story and fairy tale, Moana is also a musical, an element that elevates the film with the texture this brings.  And the setting of a Pacific paradise invites the filmmakers to indulge in some of the most spectacular flights of fancy to create land and waterscapes of great beauty.

Moana is chosen by the Ocean – a key character in the story – to find Maui, the recalcitrant demigod who has taken the heart of the magical, mystical island that keeps Polynesia’s life flowing.  She must get him to return it to its rightful place and stop the threat to the idyllic life of her people.

Like all such journeys, Moana’s is dangerous, challenging and filled with opportunities to give up.  The film gives us excitement, heart, humour and sacrifice aplenty.  Adults will be as thoroughly entertained as the children who ask to be taken to this visual wonderland of cinema.  From Urbancinefile – Andrew L Urban
